According to a recent recruiters survey conducted by the Graduate Management Admission Council, this year’s crop of newly minted MBAs are receiving more inquiries from employers than 2009 or 2010 grads.
In a poll of over 2000 companies, including 34% of the Fortune 500—fifty-five percent of survey respondents said they planned to hire MBAs. Among the findings:
“The strongest hiring this year is expected in consulting and health care, with 80 percent of health care and pharmaceutical companies and 73 percent of consulting firms planning to hire MBA graduates according to GMAC’s survey.
Additionally, graduating MBAs will see a large number of opportunities in marketing and sales. Almost half of all the companies surveyed planned to hire in these areas followed by financial areas other than investment banking.”
Not an MBA? Looking at MBA hiring trends may help anyway—since demand in industry sectors often translates across experience levels.
